WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – One lane of the Massachusetts Turnpike in Westfield was closed for hours due to a Wednesday morning truck rollover.

The left lane of the pike westbound near Mile Marker 40 was closed due to the rollover and cleanup of a fuel spill. Mile Marker 40 is just west of Exit 3.

Sgt. Sicard of State Police in Westfield told 22News that the truck’s cargo had to be offloaded. He said that he did not have specific information about the cargo, other than to say that it was not hazardous.

There were no injuries in the crash, according to state police in Westfield.

The incident was not initially causing heavy backups, but by the late morning, westbound traffic began to back-up prior to Exit 3.
